Elastic Theatre is a company dedicated to bridging the gap between music theatre and cutting edge performance. At the heart of our work is our interest in the integration of text, vocal music and contemporary choreography and in exploring these through collaborative methodologies. Our productions are renowned for being creatively adapted to the most unusual places, making these, in this sense, elastic!”
Current Productions- Baroque Box
Critically acclaimed Elastic Theatre invites you to peep into the fantastical imagination of a Baroque artist. In a special staging under the colonnades of the Old Royal Naval College, a large black box becomes the window into 17th Century ideas about the human body. With an original score performed live by Celloman, dance-theatre and opera create a voyage across sacred, scientific, sensual and superstitious visions. Supported by the Wellcome Trust and premiered at the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival 2011, in a special staging at the Old Royal Naval College.
